This Foolish Aesthete is taking a break from tormenting the poor architects.  By the way, you are one terrific lot -- encouraging me to sabotage my own project!

So what am I doing with modernist architects?  After all, antiquities and period pieces engulf our home (Our home is bizarrely eclectic.)  Aside from you wondering about my schizophrenic design tastes, I think the answer lies in the principle of Contrast.  It just makes everything so much more interesting, don't you think?

Which brings me to how I photographed my beautiful ballerina colleagues a few weeks ago.  A lot of ballet photography focuses on the soft, pink and frou frou look of ballet.  I am grateful to my friends for allowing me to deviate from that!

(I haven't forgotten all the photos I took during our ballet photo shoot.  I just didn't want to unleash a torrent of ballet images.  So here's a slow trickle.)

How would you describe your style/design tastes?


  1. firstly that's an amazing shot.i can't wait to see more.
    contrast is definitely a very interesting thing to play style is having fun with colours even with a mostly black or gray outfit i add colour in some way(popping nail colour maybe or the lips).

  2. Great shot. Looking froward to the slow trickle. Xxxx

  3. What a fantastic imagine! Lover her body language

  4. Beautiful photo! The expression on her face and the tension on her arm, on her muscles!
    Love the B&W!

  5. Hello Aesthete, thank you for visiting my blog. I wanted to check yours out- love the ballet photos, trickle or torrent. -Bella Q

  6. Contrast - definitely! What a great juxtaposition of shapes here. Beautiful.


Dear Fellow Aesthetes, I love hearing your thoughts. I think the other readers find them valuable too! Much love xxx
